Understanding the Importance of Horsepower

Horsepower has been used to describe the amount of power in a machine since the 1800s, and it is still used today. James Watt invented the term horsepower to portray just how much power was behind his steam engines, and it has been adapted to describe how powerful our vehicles are and even other machines such as our lawn mowers. He to the idea when watching how much the ponies in the mines were able to haul. One horsepower is the same as a pony hauling 30 pounds of weight for a minute.

The more horsepower a machine has, the more power it will have. if it's power that you are after, be sure to pay attention to that. Most vehicles these days have at least a couple hundred horsepower under the hood.
